Eleven-year-old Stet is struggling just to get by in a tough Texas neighborhood with an overwhelmed single mom. His school principal is convinced his angelic singing voice is worth championing, but Stet has no idea how it might help him face the dark realities of his life. That all shifts when a sudden accident lands Stet on the East Coast at one of the most elite private boychoir schools in the country, the National Boychoir Academy. It might be his only hope, but he knows he doesn't fit in. He's never studied music, there's not a single soul to support him and he's filled with a seething rage he can't begin to express. Even worse, he immediately runs up against the most demanding, uncompromising and compelling person he's ever met: the school's lauded, if increasingly jaded, Headmaster Carvelle.

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (MA15+)
The first Iranian Vampire Western ever made, Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. A joyful mash-up of genre, archetype, and iconography, its prolific influences span spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave. Set in the fictitious locale of Bad City, a stunningly crafted black-and-white world riddled with random events and flawed people that takes its visual cues from Sin City and the early films of Jim Jarmusch. Sheila Vand stars as The Girl, a sassy loner who roams the streets on a skateboard she stole from a kid. The unsuspecting object of her affections is Arash, a handsome James Dean-type who is dealing with his own family issues. In the off-kilter world they inhabit, a touching and unconventional relationship develops. Watch the trailer here
